The Wayzata state champion football and volleyball teams will have to wait until spring to defend their titles.
The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) announced football and volleyball are moving to next spring.
The board states spring football will have no scrimmages, a shorter season, and fewer games. The postseason plan still has not been determined.
The MSHSL’s board of directors decided to move forward with other fall activities including girls tennis, cross country, soccer and girls swimming and diving.
“Our Board of Directors recognizes the importance of the League’s activities in supporting the mental and physical well-being of our students and worked very hard to provide some level of participation in all activities,” said MSHSL Executive Director Erich Martens. “In addition, they recognize their responsibility in focusing on the health and safety of all who participate in or support these opportunities.”
